ONLINE ARTS AWARD PILOT
We’re giving 2 schools the opportunity to participate in the online Arts Award Discover pilot for FREE (worth £295). 10 children from each school will be supported to complete the Arts Award over the summer and by the end of August. All support will be online.
Complete the school’s questionnaire by 18th July to be entered into the prize draw.
WHAT IS ARTS AWARD?
Arts Awards are a suite of awards and qualifications that challenge children and young people to participate in different artforms through a range of activities from research to leadership. At all levels, evidence of participation is collected in a log book and/or portfolio, which is assessed by trained Arts Award advisers. Arts Awards certificates are issued by Trinity College, London, on successful completion.
WHO CAN DO ARTS AWARD?
Anyone aged up to 25 can take part. Discover and Explore are designed for ages 5 plus (Key Stages 1, 2 and above), and Bronze, Silver and Gold for ages 11 plus (designed for Key Stages 3, 4, 5 and above respectively). Gold Award carries 16 UCAS entry points. All Arts Awards enable great insights into the creative industries.
THE IMPACT OF ARTS AWARDS
Arts Award’s impact on young people has been tracked over three years via a longitudinal study led by London South Bank University. This demonstrated strong positive outcomes for young people in schools and other settings nationwide. The main findings can be found in full at artsaward.org.uk/impactstudy or download the PDF here.
USING ARTS AWARD TO SUPPORT WELLBEING
Statistics from a May 2020 survey show that 83% of young respondents are reporting being more worried than normal.
It is little known that just 45 mins of making art can reduce the stress hormone, cortisol. The arts are invaluable for reducing anxiety, expressing difficult emotions and making sense of things. Arts Awards are great for exploring emotions and ideas through different art forms. As well as being mindful, young people can develop new skills and get insights into the creative industries at the same time.
We offer Arts Awards in all our Art Clubs and Youth Arts Sessions. All of our workshops can support Arts Award. We are currently running Art Clubs and Youth Arts online and are running live interactive workshops as well as developing blended and online learning.
